Wallace Collection
The Wallace collection Wallace collection. London

The Wallace Collection is a national museum which displays the wonderful works of art collected in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries by the first four Marquesses of Hertford and Sir Richard Wallace, the son of the 4th Marquess. It was bequeathed to the British nation by Sir Richard's widow, Lady Wallace, in 1897.

Displayed at Hertford House, the main London townhouse of its former owners, the Wallace Collection presents its outstanding collections in a sumptuous but approachable manner which is an

essential part of its charm. It is probably best known for its paintings by artists such as Titian, Hals (The Laughing Cavalier) and Velázquez and for its collections of 18th century French paintings, porcelain, furniture and gold boxes. There are also splendid medieval and Renaissance objects, including Limoges enamels, maiolica, as well as the finest array of princely arms and armour in Britain.
